Page 2 THE CALL — Clarion State College, Clarion, Pa. April 6, 1963 Editorially Speaking Campus Views Spring has finally arrived at Clarion with its fresh air, blue skies, fair breezes, sunny days, and gentle showers. The students are arising from their winter dor- mancy into spring's v passion of ac- tivity. What are we doing to hold up the tradition that college students go slightly nuts with the coming of spring? If you have read recent issues of Time, you will see the fad now is smashing pianos or stuffing people into telephone booths. Are we lagging behind in the race to gain attention? Evidences of renewed vim and vigor after the long cold, dreary winter months are the crowded tennis courts and the students who have come out of hibernation and are hiking about the campus. But what is so violent about this? Perhaps we've had our share of demonstrations for the year as evidenced in the destruction of property in the Union and the stealing that has been going on within the past month. Maybe spring came early at Clarion this year. It's a good excuse anyway, isn't it? Here is a really 'way-out' idea for the spring-struck college stu- dent who feels he wants something daring and new with which to cele- brate the advent of spring. If we really want to be different, why don't we try mass studying? Think of all the people you'd shock, es- pecially yourself! Here is my plan. Attend all classes, study ev- ery free moment, stay out of the Student Union, write term papers every weekend, and do extra pro- jects. Considering the outcome at the end of the semester, maybe this isn't such a crazy idea after all! At least it's different! Campus Post Editor, The Call: Each issue of your paper does not find its way to our home, but when one does I read every word almost as eagerly as any of the students on campus. I think you deserve congratulations, but that is not the sole purpose of this let- ter. When I saw the illustration of "What CSC Needs" on page two of the March 16th issue, I knew I had to write. A couple of weeks ago, Bob Barker, on Truth or Consequences, sent three contestants away on Friday with instructions to return on Monday with the most unusual items they could find. One con- testant returned with a worrying machine! No kidding! Since I did not anticipate an opportunity to recommend it to anyone, I didn't pay too much attention, but a let- ter would get the details if anyone is interested. The machine in your sketch would find acceptance on any campus, but it really should be supplemented with the worrying machine. One would be much in demand before exams while the other would be more helpful after- ward. They really belong together! Seriously, I do want to commend your entire staff for your paper. It is a far cry from the time when my staff and I used to cut stencils and take turns at the hand-oper- ated mimeograph in order to pro- duce our monthly college publica- tion. I developed a weakness for school publications and now read them with a critical and apprecia- tive eye. Have fun while you learn togeth- er. Sincerely, MRS. D. M. GALLMEYER 120 White Oak Drive Butler, Pa. Editor, The Call: For the past few months we have been listening to and issuing complaints concerning the "hor- rible" lack of communications on this campus. Many of us, includ- ing members of the faculty and administration, have singled this out as one of the main ills of the campus. A few attempts have been made to alleviate the situation, but they seem to be wholly inadequate. An example of this lack of prop- er communications is the criticism concerning the halting of the prac- tice of cashing checks in the book- store. Much of the discontent and criticism from the faculty and stu- dents could have been avoided if they had been properly informed of why the change was made. The administration might note that Clarion has an intelligent student body which is generally willing to accept a reasonable explanation. One of the main means of com- munication between students and faculty is The Call. Here students may present their views and learn of campus happenings. The future plans of The Call are to provide the student body with a four page, bi-weekly newspaper. Many of the students have expressed the view that The Call is inadequate be- cause of its size. In reply to the people of this opinion, it can only be said that the size of The Call is governed by the number of working members on the staff. If there is a desire for the expan- sion of The Call, it can only be brought about by a proportionate increase in the size of the staff. In the same manner, we would like to see the DAILY BULLETIN published through Mr. Truby's of- fice. We feel that this is a type of communication which should natur- ally be closely associated with his work. This would also help to less- The Clarion Call CALL Office, 3rd Floor, Science Hall — Room 255 Clarion State College, Clarion, Pennsylvania CO-EDITORS Catherine Jones, Eileen Mangim ASSOCIATE EDITOR Stacy Rousseau SPORTS EDITOR Larry Whipkey PHOTOGRAPHERS Tom Curtin, Ranee Mclntyre ARTISTS Gwynn Frey, Mary Ann Lower ORGANIZATIONS Joanne Hrivnak, Judy Kuhns TYPISTS Marilyn Rose, Eve Atkins REPORTERS Bobbie Chervenick, Ellen Allen, Arnell Hawks, Eve Atkin, Nancy Maier, Karen Dygan, Sally Witter, Joyce Jackson, Janet Coleman, Jackie Beadling EXCHANGE EDITOR Nada Yanchak ADVISER Mr. David Truby The opinions expressed in this article are solely those of the writer and do not necessarily express the opinions of this publication and its representatives. PROFILE IN COURAGE Bob Doverspike Years ago, some wit — probably Oscar Wilde, because all clever sayings are traced back to him sooner or later — made the state- ment that money is the root of all evil. The damage that this particu- lar statement has caused is irre- parable. Consider: men do not work because money is the root of all evil and men who do work are taxed because money is the root of all evil. At any rate, Tom, a college friend of mine, decided that he could do a stupendous amount of good with money. He began his campaign on March 15 by writing a check which he planned to cash at the Student's Book Store. Im- agine his chagrin when he was en the burden placed on the Dean of Students. A paid student execu- tive secretary for Mr. Truby's of- fice would help him with the pub- lication duties. Another equally pressing matter in student communication is the need for a centrally-located bulle- tin board. Although we do have several very useful bulletin boards, they are all designed for a specific purpose. We are badly in need of an all-purpose bulletin board for student use. The new administra- tion building is an ideal location for such a board. Thanks to the efforts on one student who walked through the window in front of the library, we do have a temporary bulletin board. Even if it is just a piece of plywood, it has provided a place for students to talk to stu- dents. We believe it has demon- strated its usefulness. If the ad- ministration has taken time to edu- cate itself concerning this need, they might install a decent, two- sided bulletin board. This would be more useful than another piece of glass for someone to walk through. It is hoped that the administra- tion will decide what it wants con- cerning a mailing system. With the old mailing system, which was ef- ficient and adequate, a person was sure that a notice with just a name on it would get to the right person. This system had proved (Continued on page 3) Soph, Frosh Classes Meet On March 28 at 8:15, the com- bined meeting of the sophomore and freshman classes was held. In a class of around 400 students, a grand total of 11 were present. Al- so the freshmen made a fine show- ing. With a class of about the same number, there were 7 mem- bers present. It is evident now how interested the students of Clarion State are in their class affairs. We are always hearing such common complaints as, "There's nothing to do here on weekends, why doesn't our class do something?" and other such discussion. The subject of our class meeting was to discuss fu- ture plans for the Spring Carnival in April. The Spring Carnival will take up a whole weekend. Other items of importance were also dis- cussed as well as possible with a representation of eighteen com- bined. told that the Book Store could not cash checks! At first he thought that the old saying was true. Af- ter all, the college was attempting to deprive him of money, and, since his parents had always tried to keep evil away from him and his attitude toward the school was of a filial nature, the association was natural. Upon inquiring, how- ever, he was told that the Book Store couldn't cash checks because the state auditors felt that the handling of money was evil. Undaunted by failure, our mod- ern Quixote carried his campaign to the business section of town. His first stop was the First Seneca Bank. Only those of you who have been subjected to apartment raids can appreciate the ordeal that Tom went through. He was scrutinized; he was questioned; his Dun and Bradstreet report was examined; and his check was refused. The same routine was given him at two drug stores, three grocery stores, and one garage. Despondent but not defeated, he had one last hope, the Modern Diner. This hope, however, was al- so dashed to the ground because 55 other students — people inter- ested in money, not truth — being turned down by our state auditors, had already cashed checks there. "Verily," thought he, "the old saying must be true. Money is the root of all evil." But no. He had an idea. Quickly he ran home and borrowed an abundance of costume jewel- ry from his landlady; eagerly he walked to Toby Bridge; (The cost of truth is quite high.) and vorac- iously he entered into negotiations with the leader of the Cornplanter Indians, displaced from Kinzua. Af- ter a suitable amount of haggling, Tom purchased Gamma Rock from the Indian chief with costume jewelry equivalent to $37.50. There Tom sits to this day, muttering "Beware the Ides of March" and doing good. He kills water snakes with a six-foot pole. Student Defends Suitcase College There have been several articles included in the last few editions of The Call with reference to our "suitcase college." These articles were written in a "con" attitude. The students at Clarion College do return home for weekend and the college population does thin out to a noticeable degree, but there are many good reasons for this continuous occurrence. A large number of students occupy part- time jobs at home or elsewhere without which their week-day at- tendance at the college would not be possible. Other home responsi- bilities could foster more chances of staying for weekends, also. Therefore, when these people go, other students who are fortunate enough to live reasonably close are attracted to their famines. This idea of leaving the college for just a few days does not reflect to any great extent on the college in regard to lack of social affairs. Clarion provides ample means by Saturday night dances and Sunday night movies. A matter such as this reputation of the college in regard to a "suit- case college" is only as strong as the emphasis and importance the students themselves place on it. Therefore, if we continue to pub- lish this idea, placing more and more accent on it, news of us will spread at a great rate. As long as the students keep up their scholas- tic standings and do not lose in- terest in the support of our col- lege, I don't feel that there is any need to urge their presence on weekend by publishing the number of students accounted for on these weekends at Clarion State College. One who believes in a suitcase college April whispers from the hilltops, even as March goes whistling down the valley (Hal Borland )...

Page 3 1 Sophomore Gass Presents Annual Spring Carnival The Class of 1965 is again pre- senting its annual Spring Carnival on May 26 and 27. This year the Freshman Class will also assist in sponsoring the carnival. The site of most of the carnival will be on the football field. Booths sponsored by the college and the community will provide fun and entertainment for all. Some of these booths will feature miniature golf, sketches and silhouette, darts, and bean-bag throws. Prizes will be awarded to the most popular National Library Week Set For April 21-27 and to the most ingenious booths. Carnival booths will officially open on the football field at 6:30 p.m. Friday, April 26, and remain open until 11 p.m. that evening. A rec- ord hop, with Bob Avery as disc jockey, is also scheduled for Fri- day evening at 8:30 p.m. At 12 noon, Saturday, the carnival booths re-open. At 7 p.m. the booths will close in order to prepare for the closing event of the carnival— a semi-formal dance to the music of Joe Alese. The dance will begin at 8:30 p.m. A King and Queen of the Spring Carnival, elected by the student body, will be crowned at 10 p.m. The Spring Carnival will officially close at 11:30 with the end of the dance. Bookstore Features Interesting Display Of Novelty Items It is worth a visit to the Book Store just to browse around. One of the interesting items is the at- tractively displayed showcase with the various novelty items. Such things as piggy banks, beautiful new glassware and ash trays with the Clarion State College seal in full view; plastic playing cards (with emblem) and many more items. Soon to be shown will be the ever popular Tankerd Mugs; also mugs in miniature and charms for Milady's bracelet. So do come in and browse!!! Many people have food idiosyn- crasies which they slavishly fol- low. Some maintain that every week in a college library is library week and that there is no need to ob- serve any special week. One pur- pose of the week is to focus at- tention on all kinds of libraries, on their needs and how they can be improved. Another purpose is to emphasize the importance of read- ing and the value of developing a life-long interest in reading. With such goals it seems that National Library Week should be observed, not only by the college library, but by everyone on the campus. The first slogan in 1958 was: "Wake up and read!" Others have been: "For a better-read, better- informed America", "Read and watch your world grow". The theme this year is: "Read: the fifth freedom . . . enjoy it!"

Student Expresses Opinions On Thomas Hardy Philosophy Many of us college students are acquainted with the novels of Thomas Hardy. "The Return of the Native," "The Mayor of Cas- terbridge," "Far From the Mad- dening Crowd," and "Jude the Obscure" are four of Hardy's nov- els which seem to be popular on this campus. Those who have read one or more of these know that Hardy expresses the same philo- sophy in all his works. His char- acters usually suffer defeat or death. The reader understands the why of this only if he understands the philosophy of Hardy. Thomas Hardy, himself, was an interesting man. He loved life and everything living. Knowing this, it seems ironical that his philosophy would be concerned with the crush- ing defeat of man and his am- bitions by the universe. Hardy's philosophy is based on the belief that man's life is determined at birth; therefore, the universe is in- different to man's desires and as- pirations. Man aspires and nature crushes and takes away. The per- son who becomes stoic and ac- cepts his planned course of life is the truly happy person. In Hardy novels, this stoic person was re- presented by the peasant who lived close to the soil and lived an un- eventful life. The person who suf- fers pain is the one who is sensi- tive and aspiring. There is no mo- rality in Hardy because man has no choice. Jude Fawley, the main character in "Jude the Obscure," is a typical Hardy character. Jude suffered be- cause he aspired too high. He was WOMEN FROM BOOKSTORE stand behind new showcase of novelty items. The display is one of the most unique presentations ever shown at the library. only a stone mason, yet he desired to be a high church official and to attend a university. He spent his life attempting to achieve this goal, but the nearest he came to a university was in repairing the masonry of the old buildings. His problems were innumerable. Jude never really possessed a happy family life. Poverty, illness, and death were common. In referring to his problems, Jude said, "If only someone would help, but then, no- body ever does." Hardy is undoubtedly a fatalist in his philosophy. He says life is something we have to put up with or endure. Such an idea is hard to accept when I and those around me all seem to be enjoying and benefiting from life. Today we praise and encourage aspiring peo- ple. To be able to rise above your environment is an indication of a successful individual. To me, Har- dy is denying the fact that man has a free will when he states man has no choice in life. Campus Post (Continued from page 2) itself able to meet the needs of the school. Now, with the new more efficient (?) mailing system, one is never sure what will happen to their mail. First is required an ad- dress which has to be more com- plete than the one for the govern- ment postal system. Then it may be sent only to be returned two weeks later, not for insufficient postage, but for having the wrong box number. Our mailing system is truly efficient and adequate(?). The new mailing system is defi- nately not more economical than the old. Before, a student was paid $30 a month to distribute the mail to the off-campus students' mail boxes. Now each organization that does any mailing must have funds alloted for mailing. Also there are over one thousand mail boxes which could be used to save money and would be more convenient for organizations in contacting stu- dents. In this article we have tried to point out some of the inadequacies and fallacies of the communica- tion system on this campus. We have also proposed some possible solutions for the student body and faculty to consider with the hope that they will express to the ad- ministration a desire for a work- able solution in the near future. FRANK STEWART KENNETH SCHUSTER CSC Chosen to Participate In Cooperative Program The Pennsylvania State Employ- ment Service has chosen Clarion State College as the second college in the state to develop an experi- mental program of year around student placement for vacation jobs. "This cooperative program be- tween the state employment ser- vice and the Dean of Men's Of- fice will furnish aid to students through summer, Christmas, and Easter vacation positions," stated Dr. James King, dean of men. Dr. King met with members of the state employment service to get the program underway. Summaries of job opportunities are available in the social studies office, second floor, New Admini- stration Building. They list the type of occupation and potential available in each district of the state. Students can fill out an employ- ment card for positions in their home area or in any other local- ity where they prefer work other than counseling. A special form is available for camp positions which is processed at the local employ- ment office and sent to the Poco- nos and other camp areas. As this program develops, it will cover employment in many phases of industry. At present, however, approximately 75 per cent of all jobs will be offered in resort ar- eas and summer camps. This in- cludes secretarial staffs. Camp counselors should be 19 years of age with at least one year of college. Dr. King expects to have about 200 or 300 students involved in this program. DR. JAMES KING, dean of men at Clarion State Col- lege, discusses vacation employment for Clarion stu- dents with Mr. Edward Free of the Pennsylvania State Employment Service in Harrisburg and Mr. Glade Stroup. manager of the local office of the Ser- vice.

Goya and Matteo Give Unique Performance Here Spanish dance artists, Goya and Matteo, presented "World of Danc- ing" on April 2 at 8 p.m. in the college chapel. Their performance was given in connection with the Clarion Students' Association Con- cert-Lecture Series. Both Goya and Matteo are mast- ers of Spanish music. Miss Goya appeared for three years with the* Jose Greco Spanish Ballet Com- pany, and Matteo recently wrote a book on castanets. They have per- formed from Western Europe to Latin America and are accomplish- ed in dances of over 18 countries. A special feature of their per- formance Tuesday night was a castanet duet to the music of Al- beniz. Before performing the dances, the duet had an introduction to the dances.

All the brothers would like to extend their best wishes. The brothers of the fraternity also extend their con- gratulations to brother Lee Chew on being chosen to tour with the College Players in the spring. Brothers Dave Kaufman and Bill Downs attended the Regional Con- clave of Phi Sigma Epsilon held at Mansfield State College. The an- nual Tea Rose Formal will be held May 4 at the Pine Crest Country Club. Congratulations are extend- ed to Miss Mary Lou Maurer for being chosen to represent the fra- ternity in the Miss CSC Contest. First in order is large thanks from the brothers of Theta Chi to the ZTA's for a wonderful time at our recent get-together. You are a swinging bunch. The theme of this part was the "Roaring 20's". Our new pledge class looks very promising. The brothers wish to welcome these men: Bob Al- bert, Bob Baumann, John Bellini, Paul Elliot, Nelson Enos, Ron Himes, Joe Kiesel, Jerry Matson, Ed Neville, Tom Panek, Joe Pres- ton, Lou Rich, George Rocco, Bob Shevchick, Bill Sike, John Sproull, Duke Stahlman, Bill Straitiff, John Vance, and Andy Womeldorf. The pledge projects include visits to Allegheny and Penn State chap- ters. Current plans for improve- ments to our house are recement- ing a portion of the basement and installation of a pool table and ping-pong table. Our bowling team is doing quite well in the intra- mural competition. Individual hon- ors go to Brother Malacarne for high score, and to Brothers Mala- carne, Galbreath, Defillippi, and Bowser for top four bowlers out of five. Our team also has the high three game series. Intra-fraternity bowling every Sunday evening is moving along. Winners in order are the Budweisers, Schmidts, Genesees, and Rolling Rocks. Big dates for this spring are the an- nual Dream Girl Banquet, and the annual "Corral" held at the Uni- versity of Akron. We will honor our Dream Girl, Miss Kathy Ben- ish, at the dinner-dance. Site of the festivities is the Cross Creek Country Club. The Spring "Corral" is the gathering of Region 6 of Theta Chi. Chapters attending are from Akron (host chapter), Waynesburg, Penn State, Indiana, Cincinatti, Allegheny, Youngstown, and Clarion. It should be a blast! The members of Theta Xi would like to welcome our new pledge class. They are Bill Ewing, John Stanton, Larry Miller, John Ma- cur a, John Romisher, Larry Kraft, John Ryan, Ed Mills. They have elected Bill Ewing as their pledge class president. Our "Roaring 20's" party on March 23, was a great success. The brothers have recently redecorated a room in our house as a reading room. We have also put a piano in this room. We have fixed up the basement so we can use it for parties. We are cur- rently making plans for our spring formal. On March 11, twenty men were accepted as pledges into the broth- erhood of Sigma Tau Gamma. The new pledges are: Mike Botti, John Buzzinotti, Bob Carlson, Tom Dalton, Woods Cunningham, Mike Donovan, Carl Eberline, Bill Ed- monds, Tom Jennings, Dick Kautz, Ron Martini, Bob Quigley, J i m Ross, Rich Rossi, Bill Sferro, Den Sheraw, Rich Terrill, Al Veron- ick, Bob Walkowiak, and Paul Ya- cisin. This past weekend the brothers of Alpha Zeta Chapter made a trip to California State College to par- ticipate in a tri-state Sig Tau bas- ketball tournament. Although we were not victorious, we had a good time. Congratulations to the Pistols basketball team, who are the intra- mural basketball champs. Four of the starting five on this team are Sig Taus. Nice job! Unique Doll Display Here Some famous and interesting dolls from Mrs. Lloyd Weaver's valuable doll collection are on dis- play in the Clarion State College Library. Included in the display are a late 19th Century doll from Germany, with a metal head blown-glass eyes and kid body; a handsome China doll, also from Germany, dressed in a blue satin gown with "Gigot" sleeves, circa 1900; a bisque doll from France by Armond Marseille; and a pre- Civil War doll in a black satin and lace bustle gown. 'Poems for A Spring Night FAYE DANIELS AND MARGE HUGHEY set off the new library display entitled "Poems for a Spring Night." Students to Study In Spain and France Anyone interested in going to Spain, France, or Germany for a semester of accredited college work can go if he is in an advanc- ed language course and gets the recommendation of Dr. Bays. There are four different "Study in a Foreign Country Programs." They include: (1) The Pennsyl- vania-Valladolid Study in Spain, sponsored by Indiana State College for a period of six months, (2) Jun- ior year in Bescanca, France, sponsored by West Chester State College, in which Jim Johnston, Lucille Thommasone, Janet Rabold, and Sherry Koch are participating, (3) Junior year at Morburg, Ger- many, sponsored by Millersville State College, and (4) Summer School Program, Universidad Inter- amencana, Saltillo, Mexico, spon- sored by Kutztown State College. We are proud to announce that four of our students are going to Spain this summer. They are Dick Bevcvino, Frank Burrows, F a y e Daniels, and Bill McConnaughey. They are a part of a total of twenty participants, 13 from Indi- ana State College, and three from all the other state colleges. Indiana State College is sponsoring this program. The original quota of 25 was not met. President Pratt, of Indiana, has subsidized these 20 students, making it unnecessary for them to pay more. Participants in this program will report to Indiana campus on June 4 and will leave immediately, sail- ing to Lisbon, Portugal, then pro- ceeding by train to Valladolid, where they will arrive June 12 or 13. Their classes include Theory of Castilian Language, Practice in Conversational Spanish, lectures covering Spanish Culture and Civil- ization, and organized excursions. Each student is urged to use Span- ish at all times and carry both an English to Spanish dictionary and a Spanish to English diction- ary. The participants will receive thirty credits toward graduation or permanent certification. Dr. Bays has said of the coming tour, "I am sure it will benefit all who participate. I hope for suc- cess this year and better response next year so this program may be carried on." Wayne Crosby Receives Assistantship to Ohio U. Senior Wayne H. Crosby has been awarded an assistant- ship leading to the M. S. degree in Zoology at Ohio University, Athens, Ohio. This assistantship offers a stipend of $2,000 plus a waiver of out-of-state tuition and entails his teaching undergraduate laboratory classes while taking nine to twelve hours of graduate study. Wayne, a 1957 graduate of Brook- ville Area High School, served last year as vice president of the Stu- dent Senate. He has been a mem- ber of the Bios and Circle K Clubs, and served as president of the Stu- dent Christian Association during his sophomore year. He has worked for the Science Department as a laboratory assistant and re- cently acted as chairman for Clar- ion's annual Science Fair. Wayne's majors are biology and chemistry, and he has maintained a 3.40 cumulative average in his studies and was recently honored for his academic success by being elected to membership in "Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities." Wayne's plans for the summer are not quite certain, but with his serving as a camp counsellor at Westminster Highlands near Emlenton as a possibility. He will leave in mid-September for a pre- liminary meeting with the Science Faculty at Athens. After gradu- ation from Ohio University, Wayne plans to enter the teaching profes- sion. I i i 'SSI!

His wife, Nell, played by Carol McDonald, has become the target of a blackmailer. Harlow Edison, portrayed by Tony Szym- koniak, is District Attorney. No- body can get away with blackmail- ing Mrs. Nash for such a girlish peccadello, so her husband, Elliot, has to silence the so-and-so with his six-shooter and then secret the stiff. Nell has just purchased a gazebo at an auction and it is being installed in her and Elliot's backyard. The best place for El- liot to plant the corpse of the blackmailer is in the fresh con- crete foundation of this filigreed breezeway. It isn't long, though, before the body turns up its toes again on the livingroom rug and El- liot has quite a time of it with all the detectives snooping around and asking mean questions. Others in the cast include Rose Marie Lamorelia, Arlene Stein- berg, Lorna Palmer, Carl Man- ross, Robert Nixon, Thomas Con- ner, Frank Buffington, Lee Chew, and Charles Terrana. Mr. Robert Copeland is managing director, and Mr. Donald Gersztoff is techni- cal director. Mr. Gersztoff will ac- company the group on the over- seas tour as managing director. Twenty-seven students will serve as resident counselors in the resi- dent halls for the '63-64 school year. Both women's and men's resident halls will be counseled by student residents. The women student residents are: Jane Bright, Paige Carver, Jackie Clark, Celeste Cruse, Faye Daniels, Mary Dieble, Barbara Dziuban, Andrea Hall, Barbara Hankey, Ann Hansen, Gwen Hum- mel, Mary Janice Inhat, Loretta Kidd, Sally Luczka, Jean McCon- nell, Joan McKinney, Janet Munn, Lois Petrovich, Gloria Ravera, Marilyn Rose, and Dayle Stang. Six men residents will be ap- pointed for Ballantine and Corbett Halls. The program will be co- ordinated and supervised by Mr. Edward Duffy of the Social Science Department, who will reside in the staff apartment in Ballantine Hall and serve as Faculty Resident of that hall. A student resident position of- fers an excellent opportunity for students to gain experience in the field of human relations. Personal qualifications include a genuine in- terest and friendliness toward oth- er students, leadership ability as demonstrated by active participa- tion in school activities, and a willingness to assume responsibil- ity. Financial need is also con- sidered. A student resident workshop whose purpose is to set up rules for resident halls will be held on May 18 at the Hess farm. The guest speakers will be Dr. Alice Manicure, Dean of Students, at Frostburg State College in Mary- land, and Miss Cleo Campbell,* Director of Activities at Frostburg State College. ATTEND THE SPRING CARNIVAL FRIDAY SATURDAY 6:30-11:00 12:307:00 . HARVEY FIELD . r*age 2 THE CALL — Clarion State College, Clarion, Pa. Campus Posf Editor, The Call: In a recent issue of The Call, a writer of a "letter to the editor." stated that he was uneasy because of "extreme" examples of Ameri- can patriotism, which often appear- ed to be founded on hate for the other side rather than self-respect, country expounding on brutal satanic Soviet slavery. One cannot help wondering why an American who suffered inhu- man and brutal treatment in So- viet slavery should not be per- mitted or even encouraged to tell the truth to the rest of the world. Why don't we wish to hear it our- selves or wish others to hear it? Why should we be so "protective" to the "other side"? If it has com- mitted atrocities, shouldn't the rest of the world know? Just who is this "other side"? Is it not the Communists who are our enemies? If the Communists are not our enemies, who are our enemies? What favors have they shown us or the rest of the world recently that we should be so "polite" that we don't wish to tell the truth about them? Can you respect those who have treated you as a slave? If anyone doubts that John Noble ex- perienced nine years in brutal So- viet slavery, let him check with former President Eisenhower who had to make three or four de- mands that John Noble, an Ameri- can prisoner, be released before the Communists would admit that they had such a person. Mr. Noble was released only at the insistence of former President Eisenhower. Shall we say then that a man who spent nine years in slavery knows nothing of life behind the iron curtain? If he does not know anything about it, who does? Do those whom the Communists take on special two week "red carpet" tours know more about it? A fact that few Americans know is that 5,000 American soldiers who were allied with the Russians in World War II are still suffering as prisoners behind the iron curtain. They went to fight for the libera- tions of Russia from Germany, and so they are rewarded. Our State Department does not wish to put pressure on the Communists be- cause it does not wish to "em- barrass" them. Fifteen to forty million people of all nationalities are reported to be slaves behind the iron curtain. The United Nations is supposed to prevent ag- gression. If it is so "ambitious" in working for a peaceful and free world, the freedom of these slaves might be a worthy project. Even since the formation of the United Nations, the world has never known a time when there was so much slavery as there is at the present time, yet we call our world highly civilized. Is it "extreme American patriot- ism" to demand the freedom of our fellow Americans? One hun- dred years ago we fought a war in America to free the slaves, yet at present these 5,000 Americans are in slavery and we say noth- ing—we write no letters to our congressmen or State Department. The United States Army can be called to Oxford, Mississippi, to demand civil rights, but what Army or State Department is fighting as hard for our 5,000 soldiers in slavery? Are they not Americans? We can send food and medicines to Cuba to free Cuban citizens, but we are strangely si- lent about our own prisoners of war. Perhaps we are afraid of be- ing called "extreme" patriots. If you were a prisoner in brutal Soviet slavery, wouldn't you want gentlemen to go about the country reminding the people a- bout your condition? What has hap- pened to us who say we are free- dom-loving people, that we don't protest for our own countrymen who are in slavery? What has hap- pened to our American Govern- ment which is pledged to come to the aid of any citizen who is en- dangered in a foreign land? Why shouldn't a man who has suffered in slavery be encouraged to tell the truth? If one of us has suf- fered, wouldn't we want it told? Just what are one's reasons for not wanting such men to tell the truth? DR. WILMA SHERWIN I CAN'T UNDERSTAND IT . . . This letter says nothing about our scholastic rating but gives us a double 'A' on our army obstacle course. Campus Views The opinions expressed in this article are solely those of the writer and do not necessarily express the opinions of this publication and its representatives. Sound Thinking: Essence of Intellect By JOYCE HOLLEY "I don't believe this place is happening." "God, why did I ever choose Clarion?" "This place is for the birds." The aforementioned are but a few of the many generalizations made by some of the students who attend Clarion State College. I am of the opinion that these illogically thought-out declarations are repre- sentative of an unthinking minor- ity who, if not stopped, will soon establish a majority concensus of their beliefs about this institution. Perhaps a brief explanation of what causes a person to complain would be in accordance with work- ing towards the annihilation of the evil from the campus. Such things as social insecurity, poor scholastic achievement, finan- cial incapacitation, and lack of the acceptance of one's self are a few of the basic reasons why people complain and openly denounce their environment. Nevertheless, it is important that the individual not lose, sight of the fact that problems do exist in life and that they are not unique to him alone. The intelligent person will recognize his problem or prob- lems and procede to make adjust- ments according to his own ca- pacity. One of the greatest philosophers of all times, Socrates made this statement, "The unexamined life is not worth living." This man be- lieved that in order to understand one's relationship to his environ- ment he must first understand him- self. This is the primary step to be taken by those in the minority and majority group. I have asserted that the com- plainers are in the minority. It will be the responsibility of t h e majority to evaluate justly and with logical thought those general- izations with which we are confront- ed. Question the individual who makes a statement such as "I hate this place." Then determine the val- idity of his reasoning. In conclusion, I shall generalize and say, "Sound thinking is the essence of intellect." Therefore, think before you speak, especially when your expression of opinion may serve to prejudice a person who has not developed his capac- ity to evaluate what he hears. The chronic complainer, if not given reinforcement, will cease such be- havior. 'Intellectuals' Modify Ring Around The Rosey By SEAN McGARVEY Answer: "Of course not. But can you prove that one does exist? Question: "How do I know that I exist?" Answer: "That's a rather stupid question to pose after you've just wolfed down a huge plate of French fries, three hamburgers with mayonnaise and pickle, and gurgled down three cups of cof- fee." Statement: "I say flatly that the human is not basically an emo- tional being." Counter-question: "If that is so, then why are you get- ting so excited?" Question: "But how do you know that's a chair?" Answer: "Because I'm sitting on it, of course." Statement: "I'm Platonic." Counter-statement: "Bully for you! I'm Aristotelian." And so on, 'round and 'round, endlessly, until the participants land on their mindless bottoms in some stupid intellectual quagmire. Well, am I decrying "Intellect- ual Round?" Certainly not! It can When I was a flaxen-haired, blue- eyed little boy, my neighborhood girl pals and boy pals used to play a game called "Ring Around the Rosey." We would find a smooth, soft place on the grass, join hands, form a ragged circle, and begin moving 'round and 'round while chanting a rhyme that goes like this. "Ring around the rosey, Pocketful of posey, Ashes, ashes, All fall down." And on the "all fall down," down we went, the boys dumping glee- fully down on the seat of their sturdy corduroy knickers, the girls whirling gracefully down in a col- orful flurry of whirling skirts and lacey panties (little girls wore play dresses in those days). Now, in the event I should be accused of pining away for the good old days, let me say that I still engage in an occasional game of "Ring Around the Rosey." And so do you. In fact, this game is quite a fashionable one on campus- Sigma Tau Gamma es throughout the United States, and I'm not excluding Harvard, Princeton, and Yale, and I'll bet that it is played with gleeful vigor at England's Oxford and Cam- bridge. Of course, our game of "Ring Around the Rosey" is a bit more sophisticated, in fact so much more so, that I should have to make a slight modification in the lyrics. "Ring around the rosey, Pocketful o' philosophy, Cliches, cliches, All fall down!" What am I talking about? The endless game of "Intellectual Round" that we engage in, of course. We don't join hands or move about in a circle; we sit at tables in the Union or the Modern Diner. And the round begins. Question "Can you prove that God doesn't exist?" April 27, 1963 Clarion State Hosts District Librarians Clarion State College Library, designated as a State District Li- brary Center in 1962, was host to the district librarians on Wednes- day, April 17th. Clarion State College Library provides information and refer- ence service to the people in Clar- ion, Jefferson, Venango Counties and Sandy Township, including Du- Bois in Clearfiejd County. Books may be borrowed through the local libraries on inter-library loan. This means books are lent through local libraries not directly to individuals. The hours the library is open are: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday —7:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday —7:45 a.m. to 9:45 p.m. Saturday —8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday —2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Mr. Joseph Myers of the Library Development Division of the Penn- sylvania State Library attended the meeting and spoke on finan- cial matters affecting the local li- braries. Many distinguished and notable books for children published in the last two years were displayed for the librarians to examine. Mrs. Butler of the Clarion staff talked about several of the books and discussed standards in selecting books for children. Attending the meeting were: Miss Sarah Allen, Mrs. Margaret Beers, Mrs. Ann Bradley, Clarion; Mrs. Helen McEnteer, DuBois; Mrs. Isabelle Beers, Mrs. Jack Dillman, Franklin; Mrs. Pauline Clover, Mrs. David Weibel, Mrs. M. Gene Master, Knox; Mrs. Agnes Martin, Mrs. Jane Miller, Mrs. Sloan, New Bethlehem; Mrs. Ber- nice W. McElhattan, Oil City. Miss Martha Stewart, chairman on ar- rangements, presided. The Library Code, which was passed by the Legislature in 1961, provides for district and regional libraries to provide library service beyond that given by local librar- ies. be good exercise. But it does be- come rather ludicrous at times. We children never played our "Ring Around the Rosey" more than five times before we began to devise variations on its theme. And perhaps that's what is needed in our more advanced game— more than a pocketful of philosophy, more than cliches, more variation in thought, more creative, individ- ual ideas.

Studio Players Will Portray Sartre's Play Studio Players will present Jean- Paul Sartre's "No Exit" in the college chapel on May 9 and 10. This play, directed by Donald Gersztoff, includes four characters. Inez is played by Elaine Noble, and Estelle by Pat Gersztoff. Cradeau is portrayed by Bob Cope- land, and the Bell Boy by John Kloos. "No Exit" expresses Sartre's existentialistic philosophy as it shows three people trapped in a peculiar hell. Inez, a lesbian; Es- telle, a nymphomaniac, and Crad- eau, a coward, are locked in a room which has no exit. The win- dows are blocked with bricks, the electric lights are always on, and there are no mirrors. The torture of this hell is not one of fire, but one of truth. Each character is eventually stripped of his pre- tenses, and his darkest deeds are made known. A discussion led by Mr. Takei will follow the performance, and the audience will be invited to par- ticipate. As before, refreshments will be served between the per- formance and the discussion. Symphony Plays 2nd Concert Here Would you be interested in hear- ing some good music? The Clarion State College Area Symphony, di- rected by Professor Edward Ron- cone, is your answer. The pro- gram will be presented Sunday, April 28, at 8 p.m. in the college chapel. The program consists of Symphony No. 1 by Beethoven, Carmen, First Suite by Bizet, and Symphony No. 2 by Vittorio Gian- nini. The symphony is another event sponsored by the Music Depart- ment and the Students' Associa- tion. It is part of the Concert and Lecture Series. This is the first year of existence for the Clarion State College Area Symphony. The symphony consists of 45 members, including students and faculty of Clarion State camp- us, talented high school students from the area, and a few profes- sional people from Pittsburgh. Their only other performance was The Creation by Haydn last De- cember. hope that prexy has a pleasant trip to england. good luck to circle k, i am ex- changing all my cheese for silver dollars. attention all faculty: if y o u r children act like animals find a leash for them, throwing mud at the front of the library sure adds to the school's appearance. it is budget time again, and now the faculty is buttering up the stu- dent senators, hope that they use enough butter to get their pet bud- get passed. i noticed that the students final- ly got pre-registration, too bad they won't be able to choose pro- fessors along with subjects, i wouldn't want to put up with some- one i didn't like for eighteen weeks, if something is going to be done let's do it right. it is really good to be at a fine school like clarion, i hope to be here for at least a couple of en- joyable years. m.e. Careless Actions Can Destroy Good Public Relations Misguided and thoughtless ac- tions handicap good public rela- tions. Recently in a large univer- sity a few fraternity men and wo- men students were involved in vio- lation of college rules governing social conduct. Instead of immed- iately reporting this to their na- tional office, which usually can give helpful advice, the matter was hushed up by fraternity alumni and kept a local "secret" and the Dean also got the "run-a- round." This is irresponsible conduct. If IFC and alumm* officers will bring the full light to bear on such situations and promptly penalize those responsible, fraternities will benefit greatly. Also undergradu- ate fraternity men will recognize that standards of acceptable con- duct must be observed if frater- nities are to be successful in up- grading their public image. To Participate On Art Panel Mr. Francis Baptist, assistant professor in the art department, has been invited to participate on a panel sponsored by the Museum of Modern Art. This panel, composed of four members, will be presented May 4 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York as part of the confer- ence of the National Committee on Art Education. The director of the conference is Victor D'Amico, and the chairman of the panel is Dr. Kenneth Weinbrunner, both o f whom are well known in the field of modern art. Each panel member must pre- sent a paper which pertains to the theme of the conference, "Art and Human Spirit," before an audience gathered from the whole United States. Since the conference deals with the recent developments in audio visual education as they re- late to art education, Mr. Baptist is writing his paper on "An Ex- perimental Self-Teaching Device Related to Painting." Here he in- vestigates the possibility of stu- dents' teaching themselves and being stimulated by a nonverbal method. After the four papers are presented, the audience will be given a chance to take part in a discussion of the concepts present- ed. Mr. Baptist expressed his thoughts about being invited to par- ticipate in this way: "I appreci- ate the privilege of being associ- ated with this conference because of the profound Influence these con- ferences have on the education of the country." A few inches over the center line, a few miles per hour over the safe driving speed, a right or left turn a few seconds too soon without signal, has ended many a promising career. Any of these mistakes can crush out a life in an instant. Reading a fatal acci- dent in the newspapers may mean little to you, but in some home they are a real tragedy. Uncle of Clarion Student Presents Book to Library Lieutenant Colonel William H. Rankin of the United States Ma- rine Corp has presented a book entitled "The Man Who Rode the Thunder" to the Clarion State College Library. Lt. Col. Rankin is the uncle of Tom Rankin, who is a freshman attending the college. 1 1 I ,,,;,''■*':'■:;■ This Student Tries to Fly a Kite the Hard Way . . . He Tries to Be the Weight I ! Students Follow New College Craze, 'Parakiting' That would not be the advice that three college men would give you. After much makeshift prepar- ation the boys took to the air in a haphazard fashion last Sunday af- ternoon. Beforehand, they had cut numerous panels out of t h e chute to provide the necessary lift- ing power. A rope about 150 feet long was hand wound and bridals were also hand made. The method was simple. They strapped them- selves into the chute and tied the chute behind a car. As the car sped down the air strip the boy would run until airborne. The flight was said to be the most en- joyable ride imaginable but the landings were very tricky. This sport has been done before out in California and was aptly called "para kiting." The flier is to reach an altitude half the height of the rope. Due to insufficient automo- tive power the boys got only about 45 feet up. The boys were Rick Mclntyre, Tony Remick, and Joe Basari. They feel the landings, which were basically on their stomachs and backs and included being drag- ged for close to 100 feet, was the only hazardous portion of the flight. Will they do it again? Only on a bet, or with better equip- ment. Cherry Blossom Fantasv Theme Of Formal Cherry Blossom Fantasy will be the theme for the Spring Formal on Saturday, May 11. Music and entertainment will be provided by the Clarion State College Dance Band. The dance will be formal, and it will begin at 9 p.m. in Har- vey Gymnasium. The Student Union will be deco- rated to create a club atmosphere. It will be open only to those stu- dents who attend the dance in the proper attire. Lt. Col. Rankin has written a dedication note to the students of Clarion State College: "To the stu- dents of Clarion State College, with best wishes for the future— it will be better if you are mentally pre- pared and physically fit to meet it." Lt. Col. Rankin's book is a de- tailed account of how he was forced to bail out of a F-8 U Cru- sader Jet Figher over the Carolina coast at almost fifty thousand feet without special pressure equip- ment. How, after dropping seven miles in a free fall, he plunged into the grip of a violent storm inferno of turbulence, rain, hail, thunder and lightning, such as no man had ever seen before. For the next incredible forty minutes Lt. Col. Rankin was an air born cap- tive of the storm, and his eventual survival was against overwhelming odds. "The Man Who Rode the Thun- der" is the thrilling epic of man against terrifying forces of nature — the story of a man who survived because he had lived and trained in the true tradition of the United States Marine Corp.

Clarion Golden Eagles Lose Doubleheader To Lock Haven Bald Eagles The Clarion State College Golden Eagle baseball team was defeated twice last Saturday by the Lock Haven State Bald Eagles, 3-2 and 4-3. Clarion's chances of winning the Western Pennsylvania State College Conference title suffered a severe blow as the Bald Eagles came from behind in both games to turn defeat into victory. Poor fielding by Clarion played an im- portant part in the victories by Lock Haven. In the opener Clarion scored a run in the first inning when Ed Joyce singled, advanced to second on a passed ball, went to third on a sacrifice bunt, and scored when Jim Racchini hit a long flyball to centerfield. Clarion added anoth- er run in the third inning on a double by Alex Murynak, and a single by Dave Griffin. Clarion pitcher Whitey Rafalko had a three hitter going into the sixth inning when Lock Haven's Don Orwig started the trouble with a single to center, Duttry walked, J i m Reeser doubled to left scoring Or- wig and Duttry. The Bald Eagles scored the winning run in the sev- enth inning when Bill Journey sin- gled, was sacrificed to second, and scored when Clarion shortstop Jim Racchini threw wild passed first base. The second game was a repeat of the first, with Clarion leading un- til the last inning and then losing in extra innings 4-3. Lock Haven scored first when Clarion committed two errors in the first inning and a single by Jim Reeser produced a run. Jim Racchini hit a home run to deep left field to tie the score at 1-1. Lock Haven came right back with a run in the third inning on a single and another Clarion error. Clarion's Jim Racchini again tied the score with a homer into the centerfield stands. The Golden Eagles took the lead in the fifth inning. When Jim Racchini singled, went to second on an error and scored on a single by John Fed- erko, Lock Haven came right back and tied the game in t h e seventh inning on singles by Don Orwig, Jim Johnson and Joe Hoov- er. Lock Haven won the game in the eighth when Journey doubled to left field and scored on a single by Allen. Good pitching and a tight defense helped Lock Haven to victory in both games. Outstanding hitting by Lock Haven's Jim Reeser and Clarion's Jim Racchini provided most of the scoring. Clarion's next game will be at Geneva on Thursday.

Miss Flanigan, a senior in ele- mentary education from East Bra- dy, represented her sorority, Sig- ma Sigma Sigma in the pageant. Cathy, whose desire is to pursue a career in music after she gradu- ates from Clarion, played Fantaisie Impromptu by Chopin for the tal- ent competition. In the gown competition, Cathy wore a pale blue chiffon with a flowing chain, and in the swimsuit competition, she wore a turquoise suit with a V-front. Cathy's college activities include Tri Sigma sorority, Madrigal sing- ers, and piano accompanist for college musical events. She recent- ly played the score of Brigadoon, the drama-music production at Clarion. The new Miss CSC also gives piano lessons to area child- ren. After Bob Avery, master of cere- monies, announced Miss Flanigan as winner of the pageant, she was crowned by Loretta Kidd, pageant director, and presented with a rose bouquet from Darrel Sheraw, stu- dent senate president. This honor entitles Cathy to coun- ty and state competition for the eventual selection of Miss Ameri- ca. Before the selection of Cathy Brown, first runnerup, and Kathy Benish, second runner-up, S i x coeds were chosen as finalists. They were Bonnie Brown, Kappa Rho; Mary Lou Mouer, Phi Sig- ma Epsilon, Michalene Zabec, Del- ta Zeta; Kathy Benish, Theta Chi; Melissa Rosensteel, College Band, and Cathy Flanigan, Tri Sigma. Judging the contest were Mr. and Mrs. Gurs of Brookville, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Stauffer of Brookville, and Mr. Thaddeus Droast of Clarion.

Students should feel free to go to the gym those days and offer a helping hand. To facilitate cleaning and deco- rating, the Student Union will be closed Saturd y afternoon. No stu- dent will be admitted to the Union Saturday night unless they are at- tending the formal or are dressed in formal attire. Four Clarion Students Win Graduate Assistants/tips Four Clarion seniors have re- ceived assistantships to further their studies. Robert A. Farrell has been a- warded an assistantship leading to the M.S. degree in Physical Geography at the University of Ok- lahoma, Norman, Oklahoma. This assistantship offers a stipend plus the waiver of out of state tuition and entails his teaching six hours of a freshman course in geography while taking twelve hours of grad- uate courses each semester. Mr. Farrell, after graduating from Bradford Area High School, served three years in the Army Corps of Engineers. He then en- listed in the U. S. Navy and served for 20 years, retiring with the rank of Chief Petty Officer. Mr. Farrell's interest in physical geo- graphy began in the Navy, where he served for five years as an Arctic weather observer in Alaska as well as serving in various parts of the world as a weather fore- caster. His formal schooling has been received from The Citadel, The University of Oklahoma, West- ern Washington State College of Education before his transferring and completing his degree at Clar- ion State. He is currently doing his student teaching at Brookville Area High School under Mrs. Pauline Anderson. He has maintained an average of 3.60 in his studies, and was recently elected to member- ship in Pi Gamma Mu, National Honorary Society in Social Studies, and to "Who's Who in American Universities and Colleges." Mr. Farrell plans to spend two years at Oklahoma, earn the M.S. degree plus additional credits, and secure a position as a teacher in a small college. He will leave in early September for a meeting with the faculty. Toby Kisio, a native of Sewick- ley, Pennsylvania, and a senior at Clarion State College, has been a- warded an assistantship at Akron ROBERT FARRELL ROGER DAVIS University, Akron, Ohio. This as- sistantship leads to the M. S. de- gree in biology, and offers a stip- end of $2,000 per year. She will teach a freshman laboratory course in either biology or zoology and assist the department in various capacities. Concurrently with her duties, she will take nine to twelve hours of graduate credit each se- mester. Toby is a 1959 graduate of Quak- er Valley High School, Sewickley. During her four years at Clarion, Toby has been active as a mem- ber of the Delta Zeta Sorority and the Bios Club. She was elected to membership in Alpha Psi Omega, the national honorary dramatic fra- ternity, and this yeai served as the co-ordinator of Clarion's annual Science Fair. Currently Toby is representing the Brookville Kiwan- is Club in the Miss Laurel Beauty Contest, a preliminary contest for Miss Pennsylvania. Miss Kisio plans to spend t w o years at Akron University, earn the M. S. degree plus a few credits beyond so that she will be quali- fied to teach on the college level. Dennis Klinzing of 509 Market Street, Freeport, Pa., and a senior at Clarion State College, has been awarded an assistantship leading to the ML A. degree in speech at Penn State University, University Park, Pa. He will receive a stip- end of $1,400 per year plus a waiver of tuition. During the fall quarter of this year, Dennis will be enrolled in the teacher training program, and in the winter quart- er, he will begin his class instruc- tion with a class in the freshman speech course. In the spring, his duties will be increased to two speech classes for a total teach- ing load of six hours per week and he will take six hours of graduate classwork each quarter term. Dennis is a graduate of the Free- port Area High School, and has majored in speech and social stud- ies during his four years here at Clarion. He is a member of the Sigma Tau Gamma National Soc- ial Fraternity, and he has been active in Clarion's Intramural Pro- gram and as a member of the Clarion Chapter of P.S.E.A., and of the Newman Club. Special Ed. Students Attend Conference Five Special Education students from Clarion State College were accompanied by Kenneth G. Vayda, the college's Director of Special Education, to the international con- ference of the Council for Excep- tional Children in Philadelphia last week. This mammoth conference, attended by thousands of special educators from all parts of the world, consisted of symposiums, seminars and informal gatherings of persons with diverse interests in the various types of exceptional children. There were also displays and demonstrations of aids and equipment which have been de- veloped to serve this rapidly ex- panding field of education. ■ The students attending this con- ference included Carol Watson, Sa- ra Willoughby, Ronald Copenhav- er, Martin Prytherch, and William Schall, all of whom are preparing to become teachers of children with retarded mental development. They met with college students studying special education in all parts of the United States and the valuable information which they gained at this conference will be shared by them in classes with other special education students. r'age 2 THE CALL — Clarion State College, Clarion, Pa. May 11, 1963 Editorially Speaking Motivation is one of the key promises of our shimmering, madly moving American society. We are taught that when we shall teach that we should strive to motivate our students, and each of us, to be sure, has spent confusing moments trying to probe and determine his own motivation. Motivation, mo- tivation, motivation — say it out loud. It sounds like some kind of wierd chant, doesn't it? Like a mental piston driving us onward, onward, onward. In fact, the true American to prop- erly prepare himself to face the new day should leap out of bed, stand before his mirror, and mutter as he rubs the sleep out of his eyes, that magic, golden chant. Well, rinky-dink. Here's one person who enjoys engaging in activities without thinking of being properly motivated. I enjoy romping through the springtime woods for the sheer delight of it, unconscious that I may be motivated by excess physical energies or by some fool mental desire to escape from a mad, hostile society. If I see a rotten stump and want to kick it, I do so, without pausing afterward to wonder with a guilty blush why. But if I were to be asked by a companion why I kicked the stump, you can be sure that I should be re- minded of the necessity of being motivated, and that I should probably reply that I was checking to see if the stump con- tains some rare species of termes, tarmes, termitis. And, of course, to show that I am a good American citizen who re- cognizes the importance of motivation, I should, in turn, ask the questioner what motivated him to ask the question. And he will reply that he is preparing a thesis on the motivation of stump-kickers. I'm not decrying the necessity of motivation. It is, of course, quite important if we are to realize our lifetime goals. I simply am trying to say a word for sheer, exhilarating, aim- lessness. Now I've done it; I've told you what motivated me to write this article! Campus Views The World of Do-Nothing By NANCY MAIER "Everything is possible. I am God, I am Buddha, I am imper- fect Ray Smith, all at the same time, I am empty space, I am all things. I have all the time in the world from life to life to do what is to do, to do what is done, to do the timeless doing, infinitely per- fect within, why cry, why worry, perfect like mind essence and the minds of banana peels." The above jumble of nothingness is a pass- age from Jack Kerouac's The Dharma Bums. This novel is pur- ported to give a good picture of the beat generation and of Zen Budd- hism, but I seriously doubt if either would claim it. Amid the drunkenness of the beats and the do-nothingness of the Zen Buddhists, the reader may (or may not) get the idea that the hero, Japhy Ryder, and his staunch follower, Ray Smith, actually Jack Kerouac, are revolt- ing against a vaguely depicted "modern society." Ray Smith describes the modern society he de- tests in this way: "... walk some night on a suburban street and pass house after house on both sides of the street each with the CAMPUS POST Editor, The Call: A very recent letter in this column made various charges which are unfounded. The Soviet Union is not holding 5,000 U. S. servicemen as prisoners! This whispering charge is made from time to time by the right-wing elements who seem to harbor the terrible fear that the two super- powers will slowly learn to live with one another and permit the human race to survive. No respon- sible figure in government or world affairs has taken this charge with sufficient seriousness to bother denying it. Senator Kuchel, Republican of California, said of the "fright ped- dlers" that "it is disgusting to find self-appointed saviors preying pro- fitably and psychotically on t h e fears of Americans in the name of anti-Communism." Much additional space was de- voted to "Soviet slavery," seem- ingly in an effort to stir even great- er hatred toward other peoples. However, to see the matter in some historical perspective one must recognize that slavery is not the least bit new to mankind, nor is it limited to the Communist bloc. Even to this day the Ameri- can Indian and Negro would find it difficult to define his situation as one of honest freedom. Much Latin America and some of o u r allies do not know freedom. The group has the right to speak, but let it be factual, objective, consistent with history, and let it be aware of the consequences to humanity. Great antagonists of the past have slowly resolved their con- flicts. We are no less competent, and unless successful we shall all perish together; a slavery far greater than any that man can imagine. This will come if under- standing, reason, and objectively prevail. Mass incineration of men, women, and even our innocent children will result if emotionalism, fear, promotion of hatred, and defi- nition in all-blacks and all-whites is to rule. As was recently pointed out in this very publication by a distin- guished European visitor, the American people are overly ob- sessed by fear and anti-Commun- ism. Many profound foreign vis- itors have so concluded. Psycholog- ists explain this by saying that it is the scapegoat we use for fail- ure to solve the vast problems of a new, complicated, and difficult world. This is not an age for the shrill cry. Sincerely, KENNETH F. EMERICK Editor, The Call: Articles in recent issues of The Call have brought to mind a let- ter, written by an individual who wished to remain unknown to the campus in general, which was pub- lished in The Call for Dec. 15, 1962. This letter was a painfully obvious attempt to discredit one John Noble, but not only this, in asking that such programs be omitted from the cultural life of Clarion, the writer of that letter was suggesting the limitation of free speech and the promotion of an intellectual vacuum to take the place of an intelligent and inform- ed public. The writer complained of Mr. Noble's "contradictory logic," yet reveals that he was able to glean the central thought from that which was presented. It is indeed a rude awakening to discover that we here in America have more governmental ownership of busi- ness than existed under Hitler in Germany. Today there are 700 government-owned corporations in the U.S.A. that are split into 3,000 companies and 19,000 businesses, while under Hitler's socialist gov- ernment in Germany there were but 17 government-owned business- es. Doesn't the public deserve the right to know that their republic is fast degenerating into a social- istic society? What thinking person would ask for Hitlerism in Amer- ica? Today we ask for governmental grants for each thing that we can- not find an easy method of fi- nancing. We ask for security, not realizing that we must pay for (Continued on page 3) The Clarion Call CALL Office, 3rd Floor, Science Hall — Room 255 Clarion State College, Clarion, Pennsylvania lamplight of the living room, shin- ing golden, and inside the little blue square of the television, each living family riveting its attention on probably one show; nobody talk- ing; silence in the yards; dogs barking at you because you pass on human feet instead of on wheels." What Kerouac is scorn- ing is conformity in the so-called "modern society," but let us see what he has to replace it. The "rucksack revolution" is his answer to the dilemma of the tele- vision-geared America. "Think of millions of guys all over the world with rucksacks on their backs tramping around the back country and hitchhiking and bringing the word down to everybody." But, Kerouac failed to define "the word." In short, one may gather that "the word" is "nirvana," the state of do-nothingness considered the ultimate in Zen Buddhism. To achieve this, one must sit in full lotus posture and meditate, wait- ing for a "Transcendental Visit." One disregards the world and life; they are unimportant. What one strives for is a unity with the universe and a stopping of all thinking. One merely becomes a vegetable. To plomb the depths of Ray Smith's meditations, note this passage: "But I just sat around in the grass doing nothing, or writing haikus, or watching an old vulture circling round the hill. 'Must be something dead around here,' I figured." This is Kerouac's answer to television. Yes, just think of millions of guys aimlessly roaming the coun- try, bringing the gospel of Zen Bud- dhism to everyone. No one works; everyone slings a rucksack on his back and climbs the nearest moun- tain. Or, perhaps, everyone goes home to his mother, who, accord- ing to Ray Smith, has been sup- porting him all this time, to med- itate about the relationship between raindrops and ecstasy. This would present a few minor problems, however. For instance, if everyone is climbing mountains and medi- tating, who is going to manufac- ture rucksacks? Obviously no one, since it is part of Smith's credo to do nothing, and this includes making rucksacks. Another small point is hitchhiking. If everyone wants to "hitch" a ride in a car, who is going to own one? It is evident that someone must have a car to "hitch" a ride in, for according to Ray Smith, the ideal way to travel is in a "borrowed" car. A lesser ob- stacle is finding food and clothing, since no good Dharma Bum would actually work. The thirty-three- year-old Ray Smith has solved this problem rather well, however; he subsists on the allowance his ag- ing mother doles out to him. Of course, when one spends most of this money on the necessities (wine, for instance), he has very little left for pleasures like hunting through the bins of the Good Will Stores for fifty-cent shirts. Perhaps the most difficult of all these problems is obtaining a pair of genuine juju prayer beads to pray for all mankind. Ray Smith was fortunate, however, because his idol, Japhy, had two pairs, and gave him one. But one cannot use the beads without knowing the Zen Buddhist vocabulary. One must be able to use such terms as "bhikku," "haikus," "Bodhisatt- va," "Dharmakya," and "sutra" fluently. If he cannot, he will not be admitted to the weekly "yab- yum" ritual, imported directly from the Tibetan temples. These then are just a few of the minor obstacles Jack Kerouac would have to overcome if he wished to initiate a "rucksack revolution." The above are by far not the only faults in "The Dharma Bums," but space permits me only to mention others. Kerouac has no idea of structure or of plot; his book falls loosely into three adven- tures: climbing a mountain, hitch- hiking home, and living on Desola- tion Peak. He builds a facade of knowledge by using foreign terms, some of which have been men- tioned. He can be called a pseudo- intellectual. And last, Kerouac finds it hard to think in. a straight line; he is illogical. As evidence of this, note the faults in his pro- posed "rucksack revolution." As a professor has said of this novel, "Its only saving quality is the description of the mountains." What great book ever needed saved?

Page 3 Local Fraternity Becomes Beta Omicron Chapter of Theta Xi National Fraternity After a year of colonization, a lo- cal Clarion State College fratern- ity, Theta Xi Alpha, becomes the Beta Omicron chapter of Theta Xi National Fraternity. The chapter house is located at 36 Greenville Avenue, across from Davis Hall. The fraternity house occupied by Theta Xi is owned by a unique non-profit organization, The Theta Xi Education Foundation of Pitts- burgh. The Foundation, formed in 1956, devotes itself exclusively to educational programs. All of its of- ficers are volunteer workers who serve without pay. The Foundation received nation- al publicity several years ago, when multi-millionaire, Otto G. Richter, changed his will just be- fore his death, to give the Founda- tion a $225,000 bequeath. The in- come from the Foundation's invest- ments is used for scholarships and special educational grants. The Foundation is now coordinating education programs at Carnegie Tech and Indiana State College in addition to Clarion State. Theta Xi National Fraternity was founded at Rensselaer Poly- technic Institute, Troy, New York, on April 29, 1864. In 1962, Kappa Sigma Kappa merged with Theta Xi as a means of a more com- plete fulfillment of their mission in the fraternity movement. This merger has increased the mem- bership and strengthened the fra- ;ernity throughout the United States to a total of seventy active chapters. The purpose of Theta Xi is to pro- vide a college home environment for its active members in which fellowship and alumni guidance lead to wholesome mental, moral, physical, and spiritual growth. To that end Theta Xi actively supj- ports and augments college and community efforts to make indi- vidual members more mature and chapter groups more useful units of society. The Coat of Arms of Theta Xi can be described as follows: A shield of azure blue, diagonally crossed by a bend of silver, which lies between a pair of balances and a sword arranged crosswise, above, and an open book or Bible below, all of silver, the bend being charged with three blue upright crescents. Below the shield is the motto scroll carrying the public motto Juncti Juvant and the Arab- ic numerals 62 on the left and 94 on the right. Above the shield sits an esquire's helmet of silver and a unicorn's head in natural, or boy, color, with its severed part jag- ged, as having been forcibly torn from the animal. The unicorn's head rests upon a wreath composed of eight twists of alternate blue and silver, from which flows the mantle. The badge of Theta Xi consists of the Greek letter Theta superim- posed upon the Greek letter Xi, the geometric centers coinciding. The elliptical part of the Theta is set with twenty graduated pearls. A single stone, either ruby or dia- mond, is set in the bar of the Theta. The official fraternity flower is the blue iris, and the fraternity colors, blue and white, were repre- sented on our chapter float "Mus- ic—The Universal Language which won second prize in the Homecoming Parade. "Co-Exist- ence" was the theme of our snow sculpture, which also won second prize. Throughout the year several co-eds have represented Theta Xi. They are: Sandra Hennon, Home- coming Queen; Sandra Trehar, of Sigma Sigma Sigma Sorority, our representative in Winter Capades; and Ann Planker, of Sigma Sigma Sigma Sorority, our representative in the Miss C. S. C. contest. The fraternity has also taken an active part in Greek Sing, Spring Carni- val, and Intramural Sports Pro- gram. The fraternity advisors are Dr. Lawrence L. Penny, head of the Psychology Department, and Dr. Elbert R. Moses, Jr., head of the Speech Department. The weekend activities begin on Thursday and Friday evenings, when the brothers travel to the Be- ta Mu chapter at Indiana State College for individual initiation. The installation of the Clarion chap- ter, and the dedication of the house, which will be named Otto G. Richter Hall, will take place on Saturday. Following the dedication will be a dinner and formal dance held at Pine Crest Country Club in Brookville for the guests and brothers of Theta Xi. Entertain- ment will be provided by Joe Alese and his orchestra. Campus Post (Continued from page 2) that security with our freedom. We are asking for a governmental system which will penalize indi- vidual initiative and will hopeless- ly bury the people under a burden of taxes. It is indeed strange that the blessing of deficit spending is burdening our people with an a- mount of interest that amounts to over one-tenth of our national bud- get. Thomas Jefferson said, "To preserve our independence, we must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt... If we can pre- vent the Government from wasting the labors of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they must become happy." Woodrow Wilson said, "All any American should desire is a free field and no favors." This doesn't sound like the boys who would secure for us the "blessings" of a welfare state. Today we cry that our state de- partment has no certain pattern for diplomacy. We follow a creed of expediency, not realizing that this idea got us into trouble following the Second World War. We had recognized Soviet Russia's govern- ment to be the honest government of the people in the 1930's and thus gave the Communists a second wind, all the v/hile fully knowing of their purges and blood baths. We recognized them as an ally and THIS IS THE NEW WOMEN'S DORMITORY, which has been named after Amabel Lee Raiston. Banquet Held For Athletes The sixth annual All-Sports ban- quet, sponsored by the Varsity C Club of Clarion State College, was held on Saturday, May 4, at 7 p.m. in the College Dining Room. The banquet's purpose is to give recognition to the members of all intercollegiate athletic groups at Clarion. This includes football, bas- ketball, baseball, wrestling, tennis, gold, the rifle team, and the cheer- leaders. An achievement award was given to the senior member of the Var- sity C Club who has earned the highest scholastic average during his four years at Clarion. The win- ner of this year's award is Merle Stuchell, a member of the varsity wrestling team, who attained a 2.82 cumulative average. In addition, an award was presented to senior Dave Caslow for his fine wrestling record. Featured speakers for the ban- quet were Dean James Moore, dean of instruction; Dr. Dana Still, assistant dean of instruction; Waldo Tippin, athletic director; and the coaches of the various varsity sports. Dr. Donald Peirce, head of the physical science department, served as toastm aster.

Clarion defeated Grove City 10-9, and Gan- non 10V2 - 8M>. The determining factor in the Grove City match was low team medal which gave Clarion the match. Low medalist of the match was Joe Walker of Grove City who shot a 78. Runner- up was Clarion's Al Istanish who had a score of 79. Clarion Splits With Indiana Clarion State College baseball team nabbed a 4-1 decision over Indiana yesterday in the first game of a double-header, but dropped the nightcap by a 9-2 score. The outcome of yesterday's action put the Clarion record at 2-7. permitted them to take over La- tvia, Lithuania, and Estonia with- out even a protest. Yet God's word plainly tells us not to have fellowship with murders. We have reaped the results of our folly in Korea and will reap it again if we do not do as John Noble advised. His advice that we submit our- selves to God was not ill-given, for if we serve God we will have a national purpose and will have a guidebook to follow, the Bible. Then our government will be cer- tain to have a guideline for diplo- macy and it will be right. Mr. No- ble's program was not one of hate- mongering, but it apparently got under someone's skin. Could it be that someone knew that they were rebels against God and society? What American, after having en- joyed the blessings of our govern- mental system, would be so un- grateful as to speak out against the principles which have obtained these blessings? Thank you, DAVID JOHN MILLER Just before the end of a college education it is not unusual for a student to start pondering his fu- ture opportunities. Among the areas to come under serious con- sideration, pay is probably the fore- most in the student's mind. Cer- tainly there are two other factors involved, location and working con- ditions, to name two. But the im- portance of these factors vary in each individual according to his own sense of values. Regardless of this, pay holds as high a priority as anything among the general student body here at Clar- ion. Investigating the area of teach- er's pay in Pennsylvania can be a sobering and shocking experience. As an example, truck drivers for a nearby firm are paid twice as much as starting teachers. Some get as much as twelve thousand dollars a year. Immediately one begins to re- view mentally how American val- ues regressed to this level. The level that a college education, dur- ing which four potential years of earning power are invested, does not raise a man's value but de- creases it by one half if we as- sume that driving a truck repre- sents a somewhat middle class job. The obvious answer is that un- ions accomplished this for trucking labor. These organizations elevated truck driving to its present eco- nomic status above teachers, ac- countants, junior executives and many other occupations requiring more than just average intelli- gence and good manual dexterity. The next obvious conclusion is that it can be done for teaching if teachers are willing to organize. To gain further insight on teach- ers' unions I interviewed several in- structors and a student on this campus. I asked them how they felt about teachers' unions and mentioned the truckers' salary as a point of comparison. Dr. Helen Knuth, professor in the Social Studies Department, once belonged to a teachers' union and therefore could speak from exper- ience. This particular union was a local member of the American Fed- eration of Labor. It was organ- ized to aid in getting school bonds approved. It succeeded in this, but did little in the way of salary im- provement. Dr. Knuth said, "I would prefer that any union or- ganization representing teachers not have affiliations with any spec- ial class interest. It should be made up of teachers both in the general membership and in the administration." As far as the com- parison of salaries, she was not sure that unions could rectify the situation. She felt that the discrep- ancy in pay was a direct result of a "strange sense of value" preva- lent today. She hinted that pro- gress could be made through pro- fessional organizations such as the National Educators' Association. Dr. Hugh Winston Park, profes- sor in the English Department, felt- that teachers' unions would re- strict teaching and limit objectiv- ity in the classroom. As an ex- ample he pointed out the possibil- ity of a union muzzling a teacher for teaching about gangsterism in some unions. When asked what he thought about the idea of teach- ers' unions, he replied, "I think they stink. S-T-I-N-K, stink!" Dr. Samuel Wilhelm, professor in the Social Studies Department, feels that legally, teachers, as pub he employees, should not be al- lowed to join unions because, after all, it's public money that pays teachers. If unions are ever to get teachers organized it will only be after the public has become edu- cated to accept this. I think that would take a long time." Andrew Adamchik, senior stu- dent, thought that unions could work in the teaching field. He quickly pointed out that he was reared in a pro-union atmosphere and therefore was possibly biased by that indoctrination. "I have seen the good done by unions," he said, "and I am aware of some of the pitfalls of unionism. However, if a correctly organized and man- aged union can aid teachers in at- taining their just economic status, then I am for it. By a correctly organized union, I mean one which effects a separation of labor and management. This would be much more functional than the NEA set- up which integrates the adminis- tration with the rank and file teachers." Anyone considering the value of a teachers' union must face some realities. Unions could and would restrict objectivity in the public school The text boeks of the future are sure to contain material show- ing some of the damage done by labor unions to our economic well being. Would teachers be allowed to teach this? Any organization dedicated and created for the par- pose of dictating labor demands would be foolish to permit its mem- bers to teach material detrimental to its basic cause. Only extreme naivete permits one to believe that a teachers' union would be any different that any other union, or that it would be free from the type of union leadership now dis- played by our major unions. The teacher salary situation will not right itself. We are losing able teachers to other fields and failing to attract new talent because of the second class economic status in effect. The theory that teachers should be self-sacrificing creatures of intense dedication does nothing to ease the problem. There are not enough self-sacrificing, talent- ed persons to fill our schools with competent teachers. This being the case, we must rely on those qualified persons who include eco- nomic prosperity in their defini- tion of happiness. To get these people we must offer them what they want, otherwise we will fill our teaching positions with incom- petents, or fail to fill them at all. The N.E.A. has made some pro- gress toward securing better pay for teachers, but it has been slow- er than the progress made by the general economy, and therefore it is not progress at all. This leaves the overly dynamic unions. Dr. Wilhelm said that the public needs educated on this subject. This is the solution. We must act individually as an unorganized union. Each teacher must do his own collective bar- gaining; he must show his worth. He must pass students from h i s class with the knowledge that edu- cation is progress as sure as free- ways and split level homes. We must graduate students whose atti- ( Continued on page 4) >^e 4 THE CALL — Clarion State College, Clarion, Pa.

These employ- ers of the future must be con- vinced that their school days were not only happy ones but indispen- sable. They must realize that the very essence of the teacher is tal- ent, and that talent must be re- warded. PAUL HOPKINS STATE POLICE SAY: Now that we are doing more driving after dark, the practice of diming headlights is more import- ant than ever. The Student Pennsylvania State Education Association closed its school year with the final business meeting in April. In addition to sponsoring the Sat- urday night record hops, the club has been busy organizing a PSEA at Venango Campus and an FTA at Clarion High School. On April 19-20, 17 delegates and one advisor attended the student PSEA Convention at Penn State. At this convention stcte officers were elected and regional meet- ings were held in addition to many other educational events. Congratulations are in order for the 1962-63 officers. We also wish the 1963-64 officers 'the best of luck" throughout the coming year. They are: president, Frank Stew- art; vice president, Lois Petrovich; secretary, Linda DeJoseph; and treasurer, Connie Woolslayer. These new officers are already scheduling an eventful and educa- tional school year. The PSEA also hopes to exceed its 420 member- ship of this year. See vou in the fall! MR. WALTER HART leads the line of students who were waiting to exchange their paper dollars for silver dollars. Silver Dollar Week Hailed As Great Success Seen many silver dollars around town? Well, if you have, they were all part of the first annual "Silver Dollar - Week" sponsored by the Circle K Club of Clarion State Col- lege. The purpose behind this unique activity was to give t h e Clarion merchants an idea of how much money the students at CSC spend downtown in one week. Circle K Club, with permission from the local Chamber of Com- merce, staged a "Silver Dollar Week" during which the college students exchanged their paper dollars for silver ones before going downtown. Wondering how many silver dollars were given in ex- change during last week? The grand total is nearly $4,000. Need- less to say, the project was quite successful both in the amount of money exchanged and in demon- stration of its purpose to the people of the Clarion area; and we are hoping that in years' to come this project will serve to remind the Clarion merchants that the students at CSC are a very big part of their retnil customers. Circle K Club is sponsored by Mr. Walter Hart, Director of Ad- missions, and Mr. Joseph Shaw, Assistant Director of Admissions at Clarion State College.
